Sustainable Design Research
Sustainable design research is within the overall program area of energy engineering at Dartmouth aimed at increasing the efficiency of energy conversion, storage, transmission, and utilization, accelerating the transition to sustainable energy sources, and improving access to and management of energy systems.
Sustainable design seeks to re-engineer material culture for a future of health and beauty for coming generations. This means optimizing buildings, products, and other industrial systems to eliminate their burden on the world and ideally help revive beneficial natural and social systems. This also means quantitatively measuring environmental and social impacts through life-cycle assessment, certifications, and other metrics.
